Ipswich have just two defeats in their last 13 games across competitions, but both of them came in their last five fixtures. They were on a three-game winning run before losing against Norwich in their last game.

Watford, meanwhile, have just two wins in their last 16 games across competitions and just one in their last eight. They have drawn their last three games.

Ipswich, despite missing some key players, should be able to see Watford’s challenge, especially at home. With just five games remaining, they can ill afford to drop points.
